Azure HDInsight HBase - Create non-admin SSH user

Nathan 21 Reputation points

I would like to create a standard user account on all HDInsight nodes that is a non-admin account. This will be used to login to the nodes and run some basic commands.

There is an admin account created by default on all nodes, but is there a way for me to create a second account for this purpose?

    Hello @Nathan ,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A platform.

    We don't recommend adding more SSH users in HDInsight clusters, but you can achieve this multiuser access by creating HDInsight clusters with ESP connected to a domain so that domain users can use their domain credentials to authenticate with the clusters and run big data jobs.

    Note: Enterprise Security Package (ESP) for Azure HDInsight gives you access to Active Directory-based authentication, multiuser support, and role-based access control for your Apache HBase clusters in Azure. HDInsight ESP clusters enable organizations that adhere to strict corporate security policies to process sensitive data securely.

    For more details, refer:

    Create and configure Enterprise Security Package clusters in Azure HDInsight

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.
